Dialogues: Nietzsche in English

An hour and a half of lively discussion at the LSE during lunchtime, this series offers a unique mix of insights into the ideas and development of great philosophers and our most distinguished thinkers.

It is 100 years since Nietzsche’s work was first translated into English. To mark this rather odd centenary we are holding two special Dialogues on Nietzsche’s arrival in Britain. Since there is obviously more than one such arrival (and, despite the English tendency to monolingualism, he will have begun to arrive before anything was translated) we want to open the discussion to that variety; both to different kinds of receivers and to the idea of that variety. On the other hand, Nietzsche was clearly hostile to representations of an individual (particularly himself) which reduced him or her to a mere place-holder or spokesman for a generally-held view. Our dialogists each has distinctive and interestingly different takes on and routes into and out of Nietzsche, and they are invited to speak for themselves. We hope to cover a variety of themes, including perspectivism, the death of God, nihilism, genealogy and the superman.
